i have a spare box i wanted to have some fun with so i thought that a box that would act just like a linksys 4 port corded router would be fun.
here is my topology
zeroshell box with 5 nics (4 pci nics and 1 onboard nic)
| | | |
| | | |
the 4 nics goto the lan and the one onboard nic goes to the cable-modem
the 5 nics i set the following ips in zeroshell
ETH00 = 192.168.10.1
ETH01 = 192.168.11.1
ETH02 = 192.168.12.1
ETH03 = 192.168.13.1
ETH04 = 192.168.14.1 (this goes to the cable-modem)
ETH00 – ETH04 are all on same subnet 255.255.255.0
ETH04 i could not add a default gateway….when ever i would try it would tell me its not connected to a network or something
anyhow i tried to make em all DHCP but of course the ETH04 wouldnt work.
i read that i needed to add “dhclient ETH04” in another post to the startup script so i did.
ETH00 – ETH03 assign ips to the computers on my lan perfectly.
ETH04 seams to be coming up and allowing me to connect to the internet now.
i have NAT ETH04 in the NAT section
my problem is when using “FIREWALL” with “DROP INPUT” that i can not connect to net anymore.
im not using authenticate or captive…only using firewall with “DROP INPUT”
one more thing
for the love of god…..make zeroshell DHCP when it first boots….so we dont have to dig for the settings just to get into the web interface….
i had to read so many posts just to figure out that i needed to “dhclient ETH04” in a startup script….but before that i troubleshooted for at least 5hrs
try and setup the web interface into 2 areas at least….one area for LAN and other area for WAN
i click WAN tab then i select what NIC i want that to belong to and then i can pick DHCP or STATIC or PPOE
that should be in an area all by itself imho
great program but currently i have firewall set to ACCEPT INPUT which makes all my ports seen on the net
thanks for the great program though…i know the final release will have most of this fixed but that little bug where i had to add “dhclient ETH04” to the startup script was terrible….
might be a good idea to get out another release as that is a major problemAugust 28, 2007 at 1:17 pm #45795
any help would be appreciated
is there an irc channel somewhere maybe?September 5, 2007 at 11:21 am #45796
